Hanging Tough this past week

This past week I took the wife to the New Kids on the Block concert and through my sitonmyFaceBook page I got a lot of crap from some people who know me.  But, whatever.
Truth of it all is that I can enjoy pretty much any type of live music and this is my wife's favorite band which also makes it worthwhile.

Overall I think I enjoyed this concert more than the last because I only had to endure the New Kids, I didn't have to sit through 40 minutes of 98 degrees and their crappy ass music.

It appears as though I'm back on the right track with my weight management again.  Since discovering that I went back up over 230 I've inched my weigh closer to being under that target again.  As of this morning I am 230.6.

Speaking of which, the weight creeping up got me to get off my lazy ass and sync my Aria scale to my new wifi network and start attempting to use MyFitnessPal again.  It's difficult but I should hopefully be back into full routine by the end of this week and logging everything I put in my mouth (no comments).

The wife has inventory at work this week so by some weird fluke we have actually had the entire weekend off together.   Yesterday we went to see the new Planet of the Apes movie which wasn't too bad, though I guess I'll have to watch the first one to make full sense of it even though the summary of "We created a virus that killed most of the population and now Apes can talk and shoot machine guns" is probably more than I actually need.

I've also started playing Skrim again so that I can actually beat the game and get it out of my backlog.  I went into it telling myself that I was going to avoid doing most of the side missions and just focus on the Major Missions and the actual story line.  So far I'm only about 8 hours into it and I'm holding true to it.  When I complete a major mission or get close to one I'll look at my map and see if there are any side missions close by so that I can just knock them out without going out of my way.  So, it's better than before when I would just start going through all the side missions and forget about anything that advanced the story at all.  Games like this are too vast for my game playing OCD - I want to complete everything but too much stuff keeps popping up to do making it impossible.

Also - Dragons 1 - Sparky 2
One dragon bested me as I was only level 9 and my main damage dealing is with Fire Spells.  He was a fire dragon and thus immune to what I was trying to do.
The next one was a Frost Dragon and he also was trying to attack 2 giants, a mammoth and a Saber Cat at the same time so I killed him pretty easily.

I'm Also making a dent in my DC New 52 challenge where I want to "catch up" with all the comics since the Universe reboot.  I'm currently tackling the Lantern books and by the end of this week will be over half way done with them before moving onto something else.   I'm going to move on right after the Rise of the Third Army story line because that feels like a good place to break off and tackle a couple o the ones that were completed and cancelled before moving back to some of the ongoing ones.

For now I'm off to my wife's favorite pancake house with the family so we can enjoy a nice non-home-cooked breakfast together on this rare day off together.  After that I'm not sure where our fun will be headed. Thinking about buying the Lego Movie because it was amazing and I really want to watch it again.  We can put some popcorn on the old fashioned popper and pour our cokes into big glasses and pretend that we are in a theater living the high life.

Or, go on a murder rampage and hide the bodies - as long as I can be done in time to make my 5 am shift tomorrow.
